Safety on Campus

Safety on Campus: You make the difference
Your safety and security are of prime concern at The University of the South Pacific and the Safety and Security Services Team are working hard to ensure the campus is a safe place to live, learn, work and play. USP is not, however, exempt from crime. We are doing our part to prevent crimes, but to be safe and secure; YOU must take common sense precautions, be alert and look out for others. Maintaining an effective safety and security environment is a community effort, and together we can ensure USP remains safe.


The University is an open campus and a sensible approach to personal safety is recommended.

One of the main problems faced on Campus are thefts of personal property, these thefts are not isolated to any one area but statistics show that the highest percentage of theft occurs in computer labs, library, student lockers and staff offices that are left unattended.

The Safety and Security Services Team will, with the participation of the University community provide a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors within campus and protect the University property against fraud, theft, vandalism and the interruption of university organised activities or programmes.

The University maintains a 24-hour 7-day a week Security presence on Campus available to assist with any Security problem or advice you may require.
